Bishop Michael Mulvey will open the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy in the Diocese of Corpus Christi with opening of Holy Door at the Cathedral on Sunday, Dec. 13, at 9:30 a.m. The faithful from throughout the diocese are encouraged to attend.
Walking through the Holy Door, in a proper state of grace, affords the faithful to receive a plenary indulgence for themselves or a deceased loved one.
In order to receive the grace of the Jubilee Indulgence, which can be gained once a day, it is necessary to perform the act - in this case, pilgrimage to the doors of Corpus Christi Cathedral or any of the designated pilgrim sites during the Jubilee Year of Mercy - receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation and the Most Holy Eucharist within 20 days, be free from all attachment to sin, and pray for the intentions of the Holy Father.
